Chen and Chen from Beijing are a couple which came to Turkey for a pre wedding photo shooting. We met for the sunrise shoot at Artemis Cave Suites in Goreme where they stayed for the wedding shoot and we went to the area where the balloons were located. We had a full photo shoot using the lights by the flames emitted during the inflation of the balloons in the darkness of sunrise. One of the stray dogs accompanying us was included in our photos and added another dimension to it.
After the sunrise, we returned to the hotel as we always did, and after a rest, we stopped by one of the carpet shops in Cappadocia for a photo shooting. Here we also had a photo shoot using the drone. One of these photos received the Fearless Photographer’s Awards, between thousands of photos sent by other photographers. It had really extra value for me. While making our final photo shoots towards the evening, the clouds in the background suddenly approached to the ground and it became black, the sun was still above us. A violent wind started at that moment. Thanks to the changing climate, we had the chance to take photos that could not be captured at all times with the black background and flying veil.
Chen and Chan are also a wine-savvy couple. After the photo shooting we decided to taste wine together and we stopped at the Kocabag winery, one of the region’s producers. This is a facility with an annual capacity of 600 tons, producing since 1972. The cavity made by carving the rock in the region ensures that the wine is kept at a constant temperature of 14-15 degrees in summer and winter. In their vineyards in the region, they grow narince, kalecik karası, okuzgozu grapes special to Anatolia. They also buy bogazkere and cabernet sauvignon grapes from outside. Together with Chen and Chan, we tasted Kocabag’s international award-winning wines and started shopping for a celebration.
Dear Chen and Chan also attended the balloon tour the next day before returning to their country. They were also very pleased with the photographs. These positive returns were the most happiest things for me. By the way, Chen offered me something to which I could not say no. He said he wanted to translate my website into Chinese. Actually, I never thought of this, even though I have so many Chinese customers. Thanks to him, Chinese language is now also available. Dear Chen still continues to support me in the Chinese language.
Endless happiness to dear Chen and Chan in their new lives!
